Hello my friends, Spot here!
Gosh! We’ve had a bit of an exciting day today at the cat show! I’ll write a full report tomorrow when my daddy has downloaded the photos – we’re a bit tired now as it was a long day 😆
Anyway, back to our advent calendar and here’s today’s pic! We’d just like to say that Harry as a kitten always was a messy chap! No matter how much he was cleaned, he always managed to look dirty! So he’s purrfectly happy and healthy in this pic, even though you may have thought otherwise at first glance! <3
You may have been able to guess the phrase which is…. “Having kittens“! This saying is used when someone has been very scared or anxious 🙂 Of course, they didn’t literally have kittens… the phrase, like so many of the ones we have shared, has its origins in the mists of time long gone by! 🙂
Years ago, when cats were associated with witchcraft and were considered all mysterious, women were actually worried sometimes that a spell had been put on them and they would have actual kittens instead of a baby! 😯 In fact, in the latter part of the 17th Century, a woman was in court in Scotland for trying to have an illegal abortion and her excuse was that she thought she had kittens in her tummy rather than a hoomin baby! What silly people! Us cats would never want to be born in such a way! 😆
Not long to go now until Christmas! And hopefully tomorrow you will get TWO blog posts! Our advent calendar AND our full show report! I’m going to be a very busy kitty indeed – better get a few catnaps in before then 😉
Take care my friends!
Love from Spot
